Christina Haack and Tarek El Moussa’s son Brayden had emergency surgery on Mother’s Day

On May 8, Christina Haack shared an Instagram post showing her oldest son, 6-year-old Brayden El Moussa, in a hospital bed. The HGTV star revealed that her child had emergency surgery on Mother’s Day. Haack has two children, Taylor and Brayden, from her first marriage to Tarek El Moussa. She also has one son, Hudson, from her second marriage to Ant Anstead

“Scary 12 hours for us parents + step parents. After being admitted to the ER, Brayden had to have an emergency appendectomy as well as removal of Meckel’s diverticulum early this morning,” the Christina on the Coast star wrote in her caption. “Nothing like seeing your child in excruciating pain 😣..luckily the surgery went well and he is recovering and in good spirits.”

Haack thanked the hospital staff and concluded her post by writing, “Blessed to have 3 healthy + happy kids, caring family and friends and a husband who stands by my side. Happy Mother’s Day everyone. 🤍”

Tarek El Moussa and his new wife, Heather Rae Young, shared similar posts about Brayden’s health on their Instagram accounts. Haack’s new husband, Joshua Hall, posted a lengthy tribute to Haack for Mother’s Day, praising her for how she handled the medical emergency and saying she was “made” to be a mother.

On May 9, Daily Mail released photos reportedly taken the day before Brayden El Moussa’s medical emergency. The pictures showed tense arguments between Christina Haack and Heather Rae Young, and Tarek El Moussa and Joshua Hall at a children’s soccer game. 

At one point, El Moussa appeared to pull Young away from Haack by the arm. Later, El Moussa and Hall were face to face and had to be separated by the children’s soccer coach.

On May 10, a representative for Haack addressed the fight by telling US Weekly, “A personal matter was discussed and has since been resolved. We are focused on co-parenting as a team moving forward.”

The former ‘Flip or Flop’ co-stars have had blow-out arguments before the soccer game fight

Tensions between Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack have boiled over in the past. In July 2021, TMZ reported that El Moussa went on a verbal tirade against Haack on the set of Flip or Flop. The former couple filed for divorce in 2017 but continued working together on their HGTV show. 

According to production sources, El Moussa compared Haack to his new partner, Heather Rae Young, and said the Netflix star was “hotter and richer” than Haack. He also allegedly called his ex a “washed-up loser.” 

El Moussa later acknowledged his rant by saying that “choice words were said on both sides.” “As you can imagine, it can be stressful working with an ex, and we did have an incident where some choice words were said on both sides, and I’m sure we both wish the whole thing never happened,” he said (per Daily Mail).

The Flipping 101 star added that he wants his two children to know that he and Haack still supported each other. “I never want to go through that ever again, I never want her to go through that again, and I know one day our kids are going to be older, and I want them to know that we still care about each other and we still support each other, and it’s really important to me,” El Moussa said. “The whole thing just sucked for everyone involved.”
